NIH Obesity Research Funding Opportunities

This page presents information about NIH research funding opportunities. Other federal agencies, public and private organizations also support research efforts and other types of activities related to obesity. The purpose of this website is to provide information about NIH research, including research on which NIH is collaborating with other agencies and organizations. This website does not provide information on funding opportunities available from other Federal agencies or other organizations.

Highlights of Past Obesity Research Solicitations


Full Lists of All Past and Current Research Solicitations

For full listings of all current and past NIH research solicitations, please visit the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts at http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/index.html . (The grants and contracts website covers not only obesity but also numerous other areas of research supported by the NIH.)

Other Types of Applications for Funding

Additionally, researchers are invited to submit applications independent of specific NIH-initiated research solicitations. Investigator-initiated research represents a substantial portion of the NIH funding portfolio. The websites of individual Institutes and Centers across the NIH discuss their research areas of interest with information for obtaining further advice relevant to grant submissions.
